In mixing, you may have come across a form of compression called “sidechain compression” and had no idea what it meant. What is it and why is it useful? In this piece, we’re going to define sidechain compression for you in simple terms. We’ll show you some common uses, and point you to some examples of sidechain compression in the wild, so you can train your ears to recognize sidechain compression in action.
This discussion points out the detection circuits for the compressor in Neutron. Recently posted about the detection circuit in Ozone 9 as well.
Good things to know.
